Special Showing at the Museum of Nature and Science IMAX theater
With Director Jessica Oreck and DMNS Entemologist Frank Krell (plus the Museum’s beetle collection on site)! Post-film reception following.

Digital presentation - The Museum of Nature and Science and the Denver Film Society invite you to a premiere screening of Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo, hosted by filmmaker Jessica Oreck. Working backward through history, Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo explores the mystery of Japan’s love affair with bugs. Using insects like an anthropologist’s tool kit, the film uncovers Japanese philosophies that will shift Westerners’ perspectives on nature, beauty, life, and even the seemingly mundane realities of their day-to-day routines. Afterward, discuss beetles and the film with Oreck, meet some of the Museum’s own beetles, and ask entomologist Frank Krell, PhD, about beetle behavior and biology.
